Four new Linksys routers

Cisco subsidiary Linksys has released four new Wi-Fi routers, using designs which mark a significant departure from previous products. Whereas the company had typically used a signature box shape, often in blue or silver colors, the new routers are thin and curved, and almost exclusively shelled in glossy black material. Common features are said to include firewalls and 256-bit encryption, automatic push-button configuration, and MIMO antennas that improve reception and minimize dead spots.

The base model is the WRT54G2 ($48), an 802.11b/g router with a four-port 10/100 Ethernet switch. The WRT110 RangePlus ($70) introduces 802.11n support, while the WRT160N Ultra RangePlus ($77) extends accessibility even farther. The WRT310N ($115) represents the top of the line as the only model to use Gigabit Ethernet. All four models are currently shipping.
